Tell Congress You Support the Real VAWA!

Congress is back in session but is scheduled to recess next week. Before Congress recesses, tell them that failure to pass the inclusive, bipartisan Senate version of VAWA will send a clear message to all women and all survivors of violence that House Republicans are continuing to play politics with their safety and lives.

The "real" VAWA, which includes critical provisions addressing safety on campuses and protections for LGBT, immigrant and Native American survivors of violence, must not be held hostage to partisan politics. House Republicans have passed their own version of the bill eliminating these important provisions.

Tell your Representatives that no one chooses to be victimized and our Congress should not enact a law that chooses which person deserves protection under VAWA. Violence is violence.
